Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Sand in protective lens cover. Will no longer open or close. Would you know how I could clean or who to send it to? Thank you.
You have a problem.
Sand is very destructive and may make the lens completely unusable, and can lead to broken parts internally. The only way now to fix this camera is to send it to a professional, if Canon, to Canon repair. The lens needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned thoroughly.
Since the lens has extremely small parts, and may not be able to be taken apart and put back together very easily, a repair is the best option here.
As a precaution never take a digital camera in an environment which has sand, or water, especially salt water. If you do, take extra time to put the camera in either a self-zipping locking kind of bag or a padded bag.
If you treat the digital camera with carefulness, and also like you are handling eggs...meaning it can break easily, you will get good service from most any one. It is true, however things happen internally, and can cause problems as well.
